Shelter system forces mom and son to live apart

Over a year ago, a single mother and her 15-year-old son were evicted from their Beach neighbourhood home.

Because of his age and gender, the two were forced to separate in the shelter system.

He was placed in a group home in Scarborough while she moved into a shelter downtown.

CityNews reporter Avery Haines speaks with them about their struggle to reunite and the changes they feel must be made in the city’s shelter system.
